PSL summons Bulawayo City

HARARE - Bulawayo City have been summoned to appear before the Premier Soccer League’s Disciplinary Committee next month facing charges of match-fixing.

Earlier this month, City suspended four members of their technical team, including head coach Philani Ncube, his assistant Farai Mujokoro, goalkeepers’ coach Reginald Buhali and kit manager Gift Mvala, after Border Strikers alleged that they had been paid $300 to fix the game.

This was after a leaked WhatsApp conversation which suggested that the municipal team’s coaches wanted to influence the result of their game against Border Strikers, which they won 1-0 in Beitbridge.

Yesterday, PSL chief executive Kenny Ndebele said after receiving a complaint from Border Strikers on the attempts of manipulation, Bulawayo City will appear before the disciplinary committee to answer to their actions.

“In terms of the rules and regulations of the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League, you are alleged to have committed the act(s) of misconduct/offence(s)...

“You are therefore required to appear before the disciplinary committee at the offices of the PSL on September 6, 2016 at 5pm.

"You are not entitled to legal representation at the disciplinary hearing but if you are duly registered player with the PSL, the vice chairman of the club with which you are registered may attend and assist you during the proceedings."
